Daybed - painted

by brae  

Just a quick update to show you the new daybed with its fresh coat of paint.

I started with a base coat of Foliage Green by Americana.  It's a bright lime green.  I sanded and then followed it with a coat of the same green mixed with grey.  I added a final glaze of green, grey and brown, most of which was wiped away.

I wanted the daybed to look like a consignment store rescue - a little vintage but with a new lease on life.  :D

I think it looks lovely.

I love your chosen green for the daybed. Also, the patina is just as I like it. Beautiful work! I can’t wait to see how you will dress it. I have a few beds to dress myself among a million other things.

I love it, and love the green/grey too - looking very French in fact :)

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. The little attic was one of the most fun projects I’ve done.

It looks great Brae. Fits in the space well and looks good with the lights.
